Stop at The Old Fisherman for lunch or dinner to enjoy authentic Aruban-style cooking in the city center of Oranjestad.

With abundant platters, reasonable prices and friendly service, you can’t go wrong. This casual restaurant is a stone's throw from the main bus station and cruise terminal. An excellent local choice.

This cozy local eatery features Aruban seafood delicacies such as conch, shrimp, lobster tail, swordfish, fish cakes and the freshest island catch of the day. Tempting entrées of steaks, tenderloin and chicken are also on the menu.

If you want to try home-style cooking of the local kitchen and love seafood and fish dishes, this is the place to be. Especially for lunch you will also encounter plenty of locals here as the food is good and prices are affordable.

The Old Fisherman truly is a local treasure in the heart of Oranjestad. Open for lunch and dinner from 11:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday.
